Coventry City Council validation checklist

Coventry City Council’s Validation Checklist was adopted on 7 May 2019 following a period of consultation. This has since been updated on 13 July 2021. This sets out both National and local requirements for the different types of information that need to be submitted with your planning application.

All applications should be submitted through the Planning Portal where there is a document size limit of 5Mb. If larger documents need to be submitted they should be provided through a cloud based transfer system. Any documents in excess of 10Mb should be split.


We are unable to give informal advice by telephone, please refer to our planning webpages for guidance.
